some photos of the 1948 Ford Flathead that i was able to unfreeze. Its
amazing all cylinders have 125 lb compression , except no 8 piston and
the pressure there is 50 lbs and leaks down quite fast. So i think it
has a valve problem most likely. Some time i will pull the intake 1st
and take a gander there, before i pull the head. And a photo of the
Mekur that will get the 302 and the C4 from a 1969 Mustang. The Flathead
I pulled the transmission and used a wood block and a hammer on the
lever nubs on the pressure plate. the week before i filled all cylinders
with some outboard 2 cycle oil and let them set. It worked and I
chalked the front damper to see the progress. After the 3 rd whack the
damper moved about a 1/16 of an inch. When I saw that I knew I would be
able to get it all free.

Another day of R&D if thats the word. I finished fabricating 3 exhaust flanges These are
for the Mercury Flathead I plan on finishing during my down time on the
main project. They don't resemble the ones they want 40 to 50 bucks
for but these are absolutely free. Again all fabricated from left over
pieces of pipe and steel lying around the shop. I will probably do 3
more for the other side of the Flathead engine after finding out they
were not hard to do. I found a brand new 13/8's inch drill bit I never
used so i used that for the 1st hole in the steel plate. Then I threw it
into my 4 jaw chuck on my Lathe and opened them up to 1.5 inches with a
boring bar.. The rest was using scrap 1.5 inch Tail pipe material left
over from some other project.. I ground them to look almost like real
looking flanges. Once they are painted with high temp heat paint they
will be OK. I use the spray paint for stoves for high heat bought at my
building supply place, I think it is by Rustoleum, same stuff i
refurbish my wood stove with. The paint stays on the stove for a couple of years
